This is a lovely little title with a lot of throwback vibes that will take you to classic Game Boy and Game BoY Color titles. The company is also working with Limited Run Games to create a special edition, which you see below, that will give you a playable version of the game for old-school Game Boy consoles. For $45 you can get a physical copy with an orange cartridge, a box that looks like it came from 1990, and a free poster inside, just like Nintendo used to pack into them.
